maybe you could ask to to the seller which kind of synthetics they are selling. :wink:
colorless little diamonds are quite easy to synthetize by CVD process due to the slow rate of layer deposition. till now the main problem about that method is to have a fast growth of the crystal, hence the difficult to obtain big sizes.
OR, peraphs it could be another case of fleabay misleading..... :lol:

Lets see...15 diamonds, 2.2mm in diameter (usually .04 carat each) equals about .60 carat. What specific gravity could make the total weight 1.35 carat. Overcast day or something.

If they have heavy makes they would fit very well. I wonder why they just didn't go all the way and say they are D flawless? The lustre is listed as "gorgeous", which in my BS Compendium of Jewelry Rankings is right below Shinola.
